Jeff: February 2010 Archives

In Final Cut Pro we have video generators, text objects, and other Production elements that we can manipulate. Often these elements take a while to get to the point we use them. We then may have to do it all over again in the next project, or we open 3 projects to get the different elements we need for our current project.

This way you won't have to be constantly recreating the different elements for your projects. Anytime you need one of these production elements you simply select the Production Elements project tab and bring it into your project. Many of these elements may need a little adjustment. For example a text element may need different text, but the color, shadow, size, and font are all set.


You can also add a folder in the Finder, and keep frequently used files, like your studio logo, or your clients logos, in the Production Elements project. They will simply be pointing at the folder.

Going from Final Cut Pro to DVD Studio Pro using Compressor is the workflow that gets the best results with Final Cut Studio. Once your project is complete in Final Cut Pro, export a Quicktime reference movie. By reference I refer to unchecking the Make movie self contained box, and exporting the Movie. I like creating a reference movie anyway, because it gives me a copy of my project that is easy to access, but doesn't take up much space on my hard drive.
